I bet you want to know who, don't you? Don't worry, I'm going to tell you! ;O) I've never been good at keeping secrets for too long!
You know this angel as Bo at Blinks 'N Winks from Brown-Eyes.
You see, when I first started my blog back in October of 2008, it was truly pitiful. So pitiful, in fact, that I almost considered not publishing a blog altogether. Looking back, that might have been for the best because I spend WAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY too much time skipping around Blogland now, and working on my posts. At one time in November, I even feared getting a lecture from D.H. about the amount of time I was spending in Blogland! (I hear ya, Deb!) Whew!!! So far, so good! (Pray for me! It's a hard habit to break, AMEN?!)
She's also helped me when I had questions about blogging and offered hints. As I've told some of you, I didn't even know how to work a digital camera until September, (some might say I still don't ;O), so I've come a long way!
Anyhoo, one day, I read a meme (who ever heard of that word before blogging?) over on her blog about some really bad things that have happened to her in her life. One, alone, would have been tragic, but she has had several, and yet she still perseveres.
So, even though my real mom is still alive (thank God!), Bo is like a mother to me in Blogland, because she watches out for me, and shows me the ropes, just like a mother would look out for her child, so, I heart her dearly, even though we have never actually met in person. Isn't that the beauty of blogging? Only bloggers get it!
As she posted earlier, I sent a few gifts to her for Christmas, that I just felt she should have. I tell you this because she sent me the sweetest thank you note I have EVER in my 40-something years received. I literally cried and cried, and didn't think I could get through it. That my friends, was really my BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT! My heart was full. She is just a dear.
But, I told you she was sweet, and do you know that she also sent my family a gift that arrived just before Christmas? I was so excited, I forgot to take a picture of the box! Sorry!
As you might have noticed, I have a slight (A-hem) "Christmas problem", and one of my favorite gifts to receive are ornaments because each one tells a story. I don't remember ever telling Bo this before. For me, they represent something you enjoy like a hobby, something you collect or that's beautiful, or they are generally given to you by someone dear to you. They mean alot to me whether they are homemade or store bought. They just all have sentimental value to me!
Well, that is exactly what she sent. So let's take a lookie at them, shall we?
These beautiful glass fish ornaments that she sent me, went on my beach house's main tree.
Are they sweet, or what?
I think they're just beautiful! They have an ethereal quality, don't they?
Isn't he cute? My husband loves him!
Bo knows us so well! She could have sent nothing, and I would still think she's the best thing since sliced bread! But now all of you know how great she is too!
Thanks so much for EVERYTHING, sweet Bo (and Sonny too)! WE LOVE IT ALL!!! More importantly, thanks for being a great friend and mentor! I BIG PUFFY HEART YOU!
PLEASE NOTE: I am STILL trying (hard) not be so OCD over this spacing thing, or the lack thereof, in my posts. If anyone figures out why they won't hold, for my sanity sake (what's left), please come over and tell me A.S.A.P.! THANKS!!!
PLEASE KNOW THAT I COULD JUST KISS AMELIA @ Amelia's Musings RIGHT NOW! (I'm not gay ;O) SHE HAS TOLD ME HOW TO SOLVE MY SPACING PROBLEM! GOD BLESS HER! I'LL KEEP MY SANITY A LITTLE LONGER!!!
